I'd heard that it was meant to bridge the gap between mmo and non-mmo gamers; that it 'seems' dumbed down so that people who've never played mmos before don't get put off by it, but has hidden levels of complexity that allow a seasoned mmo player to get a good couple of months of intense mania before they hit end-game.

It definitely feels more like an MMO than it does an action based game but you're right it is a ever so slightly different take. As for complexity i'd say it's the same as any other MMO.

What DCU:O has going for it in this respect is the universe that its set in. DC has a wealth of deep and interesting storylines, characters and locations and so long as they have been ported into DCU:O properly (I've not played it so don't know), it should have the surivial factor that most superhero games lack.

For sure. The only reason games like CoH don't hold any interest to me is that I feel that you require the rich background that only companies like DC or Marvel can supply when it comes to Super Hero games.

Lunarwolf wrote:

A lot of sites are complaining that it seems too action-packed for an mmo and plays more like an action game (like Prototype) than an mmo, but I say 'fair play to them' for doing something different! After all thats what SWTOR is doing with storylines!

I'd actually say it plays more like an MMO but with an action based twist. To be honest things like crafting would actually be out of place in a game like this. It does have mini-games like running around a short course in a small amount of time and other features that are similar but everything else is pretty much your standard MMO. Vaults, vendors, quests, customizarion.. theyre all there.

Quote :

Personally I'm a bit too skeptical after being burnt by CoH/Co, but it does look like many people will get good mileage out of this......a bit like SWG (if the community flourishes)

From what I've played of CoH I can honestly say this is a lot better, but I guess it's each to their own. Lets face it SWG has died a death so I think this will be their focus now.

I've VERY tempted to get this on Thursday (Pay day) but also need to get some bits for the xbox like my 250Gb HDD so I'll keep you posted SS. BTW is there crafting?

Nope, no crafting I'm afraid but as I said earlier I think it would feel out of place..

Lets us know if you get it and I'll send you an invire to the guild I'm in, although tbh I might leave soon as nobody speaks apart from Ian!

I've got 2 Characters

Dr Fear, who uses Gagets and Duel Pistols and Psychis who uses Mental and hand blast. So far I'm enjoying the game it has a nice different feel then most MMO's

My latest creation...Kid Flare! He's a goody two shoes hero. He's got some cool flame based skills but I still prefer my villian, Serpentina.

Is there an option to make a "joe normal" character? with all that spandex and glowing eyes and super-hair flying about I think it would be ace to make a normal looking schmo in like a suit or something - someone who would blend in with the normal populace ^^

Just found this DCU:O Ign Review where they gave it a pretty respectable score of 7.0

Reading between the lines I think they're basically saying: 'Great start, has potential. Needs improvement but they were brave to bridge the PC/Console MMO market.'

Your Dr Fear looks oddly similar to SS's Serpentina... Could it be that they are... you-know-what...

Funny you should say that, I've just found out that we may have an unofficial RP server, so I might create a vigilante-style character that uses guns, ala The Punisher when I find out which one it is. I'm going to pop my head in on all the servers and see how the RP's going down. If you wanna join me Tando, feel free to start a new char.

Hey, he wouldn't want a piece of her what with her reptilian skin etc. She's kinda based around Medusa the Gorgon and Mystique from the X- Men.

Actually here's some new screenies of her:

Oh and sorry for the double post but I disagree with a lot of that review. Character customization is top notch and there's a wealth of possibilties you can choose as you progress through the game. I also can't help but feel that he hadn't played it for that very long because after a while the combat comes naturally. He's also failed to leave out the fact you get to team with the heroes and villians of the DC world, which I think is pretty important if you're a fan of the universe. Arenas are also a very good laugh and not that different from TOR's Flashpoints from what I've seen, so I dunno what game he was playing!! I do agree with him on the clunky social options though. They seem far from finished.

My score = 8/10

Actually after watching that review I had a more positive view of the game Smile

Primarily because I watch/read a sh1tload of reviews and I thought to myself while watching it:

"well if thats the worst they can say about it then I've played games WAY worse than this..."

I'd actually like to give the game a try but I'll wait till there is a Trial available.

I kind of stole your idea but I was thinking it would look cool when we group up.



Here's Deathblow, I'm using a rifle and he's on the Hero side Smile

This charater is on the Virtue & Vice server

Cool, I'm assuming it doesn't delete your other characters? That would be sucky!
